Overview

Sensor solutions for the battery industry

Batteries based on different technologies are used in many fields. Regardless of whether in electric vehicles, energy storage systems, tools, or mobile communication devices such as smartphones, batteries are becoming more and more important. And the factors that ultimately decide their success on the market are properties such as quality, price, and service life. The automation of production sites and their processes significantly contributes to meeting market requirements for batteries in terms of quality and price. SICK boasts a unique technology and product portfolio for the diverse manufacturing processes of electrodes, battery cells, and battery modules and packs.

Trends & News

Sensor intelligence in automobile production supports electromobility

More vehicles are relying on electric motors and “intelligence” is increasingly being built into vehicles. Developments in the area of electromobility are having a massive impact on industry as a whole. You see, it is not just automakers and their suppliers that are calling for new production concepts and processes. They are also being demanded by machine tool manufacturers, the handling and assembly sector, and the battery making industry. As experts in sensor technology, we at SICK are making an important contribution to this.

Double layer detection of battery cell stacks

The stacking of the electrode and separator sheets is very important for the production of battery cells. If, as a result of adhesion, multiple identical sheets are added at the same time, the result is a defective cell. The IDF inductive MultiTask sensor reliably detects electrodes that are hanging onto one another, thereby minimizing rejects.

Challenges

Detecting and measuring

The short product life cycle of electronic devices requires flexible production lines with minimum downtime and a high diagnosability. modern, intelligent sensors from SICK are able to store settings in memory and feature automatic teach-in and diagnostic capabilities, making a significant contribution towards meeting these challenges.

Protecting

Linking automated production equipment with semiautomated assembly cells requires intelligent and flexible safety concepts. SICK safety solutions ensure the protection of operating personnel, optimize production, and reduce the machine footprint and downtime.

Monitoring and controlling

Batteries need to fulfill high safety requirements. This demands the utmost reliability in production processes and poses a highly challenging task for quality control. Distance sensors, and vision sensors as well as systems from SICK support nearly every type of monitoring.

Data management and identification

Reliable identification of objects is a prerequisite for a smooth production flow and forms the basis for traceability and continuous quality improvement. SICK offers a wide range of both permanently installed and mobile readers for bar codes, 2D codes, and RFID technology.
